It used to be the only folks who carried around those little pocket projectors were those who got paid to do it — road warriors who have to be able to give presentations whenever, wherever. And they were either big and clunky, or smallish and expensive. Lenovo's got the best of both worlds in its Pocket Projector, making its debut at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The whole thing's about 4 inches by 4 inches and about an inch thick. It's nicely curved, so it's not horrible on the eyes. It's powered by microUSB and has a battery for about 2.5 hours of playback. Stereo speakers on either side of the projector mean this is a self-contained unit, or you can use the 3.5 mm audio jack to get the sound into something bigger. (The speakers are just OK, not really surprising for something this small.)
The projector supports DLNA and Miracast, so it'll work with Android, Windows 8.1 and compatible iOS apps as well.
You can raise the projector itself either at an angle (the lens will correct for that) or all the way to vertical, for watching movies on the ceiling, perhaps. The 50-lumen projector will throw the 480p images up to 110 inches wide.
And if you're looking to grab something like this to watch movies with the kids away from the living room, it's not going to break the bank at $249. Time for Frozen on the ceiling, folks.
The Lenovo Pocket Projector will be available later this month.
